I've just implemented a feature in opkg to keep track of packages that
are automatically installed to satisfy a dependency. The idea being that
if the users requests, these can be removed if they are no longer

I think there are two possible scenarios about when the user may want to
take advantage of this feature. Either during the remove function, or as
part of a separate "clean up" function.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how this could be implemented in
